Holt - Holt - An immaculately presented and particularly spacious, 5 bedroom, 4 reception room detached family house with a large conservatory and a double garage/annexe, set in south facing gardens of about half an acre in the heart of the popular village of Holt. Built in the 1970s, The Nutshell has been completely modernised and refurbished to a high standard by the present owners. The house has also recently been re-decorated.

The property is connected to mains electricity and water, and has a low maintenance, highly efficient Titan drainage system, oil fired heating, UPVC double glazing and cavity wall and loft insulation. It extends to over 3,600 square feet and is presented in pristine condition throughout.

Holt is a popular setting with a village hall, a village green and the popular Old Inn pub, about 3 miles north of the market town of Wimborne Minster. There is a post office/stores and another pub, The Stocks Inn, in the neighbouring village of Furzehill, and a FirstSchool in nearby Gaunts Common. The wider area is well served by state and public schools including Queen Elizabeth’s, Dumpton, Castle Court, Canford, Bryanston and Clayesmore, and the coastal resorts of Poole and Bournemouth, both of which have mainline rail links to London Waterloo, are easily accessible by car.

A large hallway leads to a spacious drawing room with feature brick fireplace and double doors to an impressive conservatory with oak flooring and double doors to the garden. The kitchen is particularly well presented, with a range of black granite work surfaces and a comprehensive range of units, 2 Stoves double fan ovens, hob, extractor, dishwasher, larder fridge and drawer freezer. A walkway leads to a spacious dining room with a wide oak boarded floor and a brick fireplace. There is a study to the rear and a separate sitting room to the front, and the ground floor also features a shower room and a utility room.

On the first floor there are 4 spacious bedrooms, 2 en suite shower rooms and a bathroom, and a balcony to the front.

A connecting lobby on the ground floor leads to the attached double garage/annexe. There are 2 separate garages with up-and-over doors, and a utility/kitchen area and shower room. Stairs lead up to bedroom 5 which could also be used as a hobbies room/studio.

From the village road, a slipway leads through a 5-bar electric gate to a gravelled courtyard with an open-fronted double carport. There is plenty of off road parking, and access to the double garage.

The south facing garden is predominantly laid to lawn and screened from the road by an established tree line. The large entertaining terrace receives sun all day. To the rear of the house there is a timber office which is fully insulated, with lighting and power.
